Two parter here, folks.
I've had the same slat-type futon for what seems like a lifetime. I'm wanting to get something more... adult-looking, I guess you could say. However, I'd rather not get something ho hum or Ikea-ish. I've also never bought a real bed before (mattress/box spring, etc.). What should I look for? Watch out for? Do I even need a box spring. Are the non-slat futons any good (I like the "it's a couch/no, it's a bed!" aspect of futons, just not the appearance).
Can anyone recommend any Toronto shops that would have unique beds (preferably ones with a web site I can browse) or good mattresses? How about non-Toronto shops that will ship a kickass bed?
Second, is there any OS X software that will let me punch in the dimensions of my furniture and rooms and allow me to rearrange things and see how they look before i really rearrange things?
